The film follows a high schooler named Danny Parker as his life is thrown into chaos when he finds out he is part of a society on a planet filled with superheroes from around the universe, and is told he is the chosen one to protect earth. When earth is targeted by an inter-dimensional being known as Nightmare, Danny must live up to his title, and defend earth.
As far back as the conclusion of the Moon Wars saga, the plans for a film about a hero named The Dark Knight were being formed. In 2013, TheFallen123 announced that filming would begin for The Dark Knight, and CosimoValuta was called on as a scriptwriter for Part 1 and then later the rest of the movie along with PlopBLOX. The film was planned to be co-directed by Thefallen123 and also Lenopow.
Reception has been generally positive.
|This is possibly one of the most epic ROBLOXian movies I have ever seen. Great job, man. I like the characters, the plot, the visual effects, aw hell, I like EVERYTHING about it, except that you're like, trying to squeeze in 30 mins of film into one part. Anyway, great job. 9.5/10||ST477Films|
|At the end of the day, TheFallen123’s Dark Knight was thrilling and fun, some basic storytelling which is a nice change from the frequent ‘use your brain’ stuff which people keep belching out now. Characters were a bit generic and a I had a few minor issues with pacing, but this movie still holds up as a Robloxiwood great. 8/10.||Rick120|
|Some of the same problems The Dark Knight: Knightfall has. Real cliche. There's also a ton of unfitting music -- what's We No Americano doing in here? Some of the characters are just archetypes and nothing more, but Danny was decently developed. I'm feeling a strong 5.||ThecapcomFreak|
|The Bad - What I see in some scenes is the the black bars appear on different sides of the films which was kind of an annoyance. The audio was a little too loud to the point in which some static was heard instead of gunfire. Finally the last issue is the Health Bar/Name showing on some scenes which makes it seem unprofessional. I don't know if you do but I have an admin commands script that contains a command to remove that completely.
The Good - The cinematography was good. The story is decent but there are some touching scenes like at the end between Danny and Alexis. A lot of comedic moments which I don't know if it was intended but it made me chuckle many of times.The soundtrack selection was awesome! Honestly voice acting has still not come to many roblox films yet but a good soundtrack always redeems that. 7.9/10
AVERAGE RATING: 7.6/10
